Make and Take Details

Creativity and Technique

Each Make and Take highlights fundamentals of the projects’ disciplines. Our facilitator will guide you through the process of creating beautiful works of art, functioning machines and more. The Leonardo’s exhibits may inspire you to fuse technology, science and art in this program and often new exhibits will spark the theme of our make and takes.


Science, tech, engineering, art and math are all intersectional. Learn to fuse these disciplines as you get creative while building machines or dive into the mathematics of our world through explorations in the arts. Along the way you may start to see the world as Leonardo da Vinci would have!


Occasionally, Make and Take is the perfect way to get in those holiday projects. Unique gifts, custom ornaments, traditional crafts, ingenious decor and other projects are highlighted seasonally. Take home a personalized project to mark your special occasion!
